Did you know that monkeys, penguins and cockatoos can dance? Here’s your chance to move like the animals! In this class, we will experience the joys of creative movement as we explore elements like rhythm, shape, and space. Together, we’ll play fun games and activities, and learn basic dance concepts that will be showcased in a choreographed piece for friends and family at the end of the week. No experience is necessary to participate, but comfortable clothing and bare feet are required.

The anteater lost her stash of ants! The rattlesnake misplaced his rattle! Where do animal friends turn when they need a mystery solved? To the Super Sloth Sleuthing Agency, of course. The only problem is that these sloths work so slowly that the animals need to solve their own mysteries. In this camp, your child will participate in theatre activities specifically designed for young children that will help them learn about acting, singing and movement in an audition-free ensemble environment. The camp culminates in a final performance of Super Slow Super Sloths, which is open to the public.

The ukulele is a fun instrument for little strummers, and a week is the perfect amount of time to begin learning how to play it! In this class, we’ll sing songs, play musical games and learn about all the beautiful sounds the ukulele can make. No experience is necessary to participate, and each child will take care of her/his very own ukulele. You can purchase a ukulele in the color of your choice, or bring your own. At the end of the camp, participants will participate in a concert to show friends and family what they’ve learned.
